It's Love I'm After is a delightful romantic comedy from 1937, starring an all-star cast including Leslie Howard, Bette Davis, and Olivia de Havilland. The film follows the hilarious antics of two warring Shakespearean actors, Basil Underwood (Leslie Howard) and Joyce Arden (Bette Davis). Basil and Joyce, who perform together onstage, but have a seething hatred for each other offstage, find their lives turned upside down when their young admirers, Marcia (Olivia de Havilland) and Henry (Patric Knowles), become engaged to be married.

Marcia is a devoted fan of Basil's, while Henry adores Joyce, leading to some jealousy and confusion between the two couples. As much as Basil and Joyce try to interfere with the young couple's plans, they find themselves inevitably drawn to one another, leading to a hilarious and chaotic series of events.

The film is full of witty dialogue and slapstick comedy, with standout performances from its leads. Bette Davis steals the show as the fiery, temperamental Joyce, who is determined to get her way at all costs. Leslie Howard, meanwhile, brings a charmingly befuddled quality to his portrayal of the exasperated Basil.

Olivia de Havilland rounds out the cast with her sweet and endearing performance as Marcia, who is torn between her love for Henry and her admiration for Basil. Patric Knowles is also delightful as the earnest and somewhat clueless Henry.

The film is set against the backdrop of the glamorous world of the theater, with lavish costumes and sets that add to the film's overall charm. The plot is fast-paced and entertaining, with plenty of twists and turns to keep audiences engaged.

Overall, It's Love I'm After is a delightful classic Hollywood comedy that showcases the talents of some of the era's biggest stars. Its wit, charm, and slapstick humor make it a must-see for fans of classic Hollywood cinema.
